>> Hi George,
Got them from Pinetree Seeds if I remember right. They're up in Maine but
have an email address. I'll look it up and post it. I'm trying to get rid
of the squash borers so will be growing only solid stem squash. The blasted
borers drilled the Butternut squash too so that didn't work. Anyone know if
beneficial nematodes kill borer larvae? Since I'm putting down the
nematodes to get rid of chafer and June beetle grubs thought I might
benefit some extra if they work on borers.

I would like to raise some next spring.
